Field Day 2013 Invitation are hereby invited to participate with the Loudoun Amateur Radio Group’s 2013 Field Day. Activities will include learning about radios, talking to people over the radio across the world. Many requirements for the Radio Merit Badge can be passed off as well. You do not need an amateur radio license to participate in this event!

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

Why: Field Day tests the ability to set up an emergency communication station anywhere in the country. Amateur Radio Operators are often the only people able to communicate in the event of a major disaster, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, etc. They also can communicate from remote locations.

Date- Saturday, June 22
Time- 2:00 P.M. and later

Location: Westerman Farm (W5ODJ)
38668 Sierra Lane
Lovettsville, VA 20180
